Word Of The Week

SNATTERS is the word of the week. As the comments on the post “Eating Out” seem to be around this word, I thought I’d create a post on the Word. The word brings back childhood memories from my old head.

1. Nose Icicles
2. Bogie Tracks
3. Face Tinsel
4. Glass Legs ...... Just to name some….

When I was young there used to be a wee girl (NO not Wee Dolly Bird) in our street (Avenue actually) who always had Nose Icicles. You were classed as a tough lad if you dared to kiss her... (Or a psychopath if the kiss turned into a snog)
Feel free to send me your interpretation of SNATTERS... Wikipedia does not have the word’s Snat or Snatters (Too common) so maybe someone should put up an Ulster Snats Version ?

A Poem
Have you ever seen a bunny?
With it’s nose all green and runny
You may think it’s funny
Well, it’s snot…………

OOP's, How Did That Happen

Just back from Slimming World. As I said last week I'm in the business now of trying to keep my weight within a three lb bracket of my target. (7 stone). Slipped up this week. I don't normally weigh myself through the week but I was out last Friday night for a few glasses of wine then home for a wonderful steak dinner and I have to confess I went overboard on the cheesecake (Three slices) then a cheese board, had more of the same on Saturday, coffee and muffins on Sunday. I got on the scales on Sunday and I had two pound ON.
I re-focused and I hit the gym and went swimming Monday, Tuesday and Today hoping to at best maintain (Same weight as last week). What a surprise I got when I got on the scales tonight... Another pound and a half off...

7 Stone 3 and a half lb

That means I've broken the rules as a target member by going a half pound under my allowance.... Need at least a half lb on by next Wednesday. Looks like I'll have to be bad the weekend.... I know.. life can be a bitch at times....

Blonde Moment

True Story: I was standing at a ground floor lift (Elevator, if you are from the USA) When I was joined by this blonde. The doors opened and she asked me if I was going UP..... I replied "I didn't know this lift went Down"
Total silence for five floors.....

Scum News

Who said it can't get any worse. Read this article about so called human being who can only be described as scum who attacked two defenceless blind brothers in there own home. "SOMEONE KNOWS WHO CARRIED OUT THIS SAVAGE ACT"
Can't say I'd shed a tear if I saw the scum being paraded to the Police station with a placard around their next saying SCUM
It's made me so cross, my heart goes out to the brothers.......

Sign Of The Times

What a time and place we live in. When dung happens there is always someone out there in fantasy land who puts it down to social frustration, broken homes, or (wait for it) there is nothing for the young to do. OK, nothing for them to do? so that's why they steal cars, set them on fire then attack the firefighters who are called to put the fire out, these men put their lives on the line everyday in order to save lives? The nothing to do team broke into an ambulance, damaged it and stole vital equipment.
Then you have the something to do team, who in front of the many young spectators (And of course TV cameras which broadcast the disgraceful scenes nationwide) in the name of their sport bring their true up bringing to the field and display nothing short of "Thugs in boots"
I do hope their sports govern body brings the full weight of the rule book down on them. Violence has no place in our society, especially sport.

Should Have Gone To Specsavers

I had to go and collect a new supply of contact lens today at Specsavers. The car park at the shopping centre is operated by a one way system. Needless to say there was a driver coming around the wrong way... HE should have gone to Specsavers....

Computer Say's Noooooooo

My poor sicky bad PC seemed to be on it's death bed. It's vital organs had started to shut down one by one. With the help of a electronic miracle in the form of a re-installation (Rather than a re-incarnation...) It seems to be making a slow but steady recovery, what a pain it is having to reset everything an install the extra programs. It's going to take a while...
Glad I've the laptop

Eating Out

The odd time my vast experience in driving is called upon to become an unpaid chauffeur .. I don't mind, as it's usually to take my wonderful LSD into the city for some window shopping (I mind her purse). As a reward I'm granted permission to go to my favorite oyster bar for a few glasses of sparkling wine while my LSD continues to window shop... The Oyster bar is in the House of Fraser at Victoria Square. There's nothing better than having a few glasses of wine, oysters and granite's (Chili, lemongrass) and of course a good splash of Tabasco. The best thing is, the bar is in situ beside a shoe emporium (OK, sales rack) it's an education watching women trying to choose shoes. It's brill when they see the price.... OMG...then you hear all the reasons why they don't want the shoes.... wrong colour, too small, too big... NAH... I say TOO DEAR...dear.
Anyway, I've yet to see anyone buy shoes there.... But, then again, I've yet to see the way out.
PS: My LSD drives ME home......

A Long Weight

I know it's been a while, so I thought I'd start back blogging with an update about my weight. Just back from Slimming World. I'm in the business now of trying to keep my weight within a three lb bracket of my target. (7 stone) Pleased to say it's working fine so far. I'd another half lb off tonight...
7 Stone 2 lb
Saw a sign today for JD's advertising a Christmas dinner and a class of wine for £5:99 ... Great deal (Or no deal ,as the case could be)
I thought, great value in this time of the credit crunch, but I'm a great believer in you get what you pay for.... "Road Kill & Vinegar" came to mind....

Back Soon

It's been over a month now since I've updated the blog, but I will be starting back to the blog very soon. Really been up to my ears with other things.
I have been pleased though, with how many people have mentioned to me that they read my blog on a regular basis and wondered why I have stopped updating it. (I told both of them I will be updating again soon...honest)
